Here is another by me

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832

This is actually two poems that were on one page and both went together well so I put them together

Gingo Biloba and Splitting Up? - the poems seemed to have no names

Thank you Kangaroo! I have added them all in the Magic Window. For the third one by Emily Dickinson, I can't find it in the book you linked. Maybe you intended to link to another one? Or if that's the correct one, which poem number is it?

Okay, sorry that's the wrong one. The right one is just a number away. :)

It's the second poem in Part 3, Nature.

Well, I thought I might try a piece of poetry (tried to pick something short for my first Librivox attempt)...

Stonewall Jackson's Way by John Williamson Palmer (1825-1896)
Source Text: http://www.bartleby.com/102/159.html
Length: 2m18s
Audio Link: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc144_stonewalljacksonsway_cmd_128kb.mp3

This is my first recording, so my name should appear in the catalog as Christopher Davis
By the way, the cough in the fourth section is completely purposeful....
Also, I would love to hear any critique, suggestions, or comments! :)

Hi Christopher! Welcome to Librivox! :D
Thank you for your contribution with this poem. It's very nicely read and indeed the cough in that place if very appropriate!

https://librivox.org/reader/10075
This is your Reader page in the catalog. Notice the "Reader section details" link. It lists all your sections/claims in open projects so it's helpful keep track.

I've marked it PL OK, in other words: ready for the catalog! Congrats on your first librivox recording! :clap:
Note that the suggested ending silence for recordings shorter than 30 minutes is ~5 seconds. You'll also notice in other projects (info in first post) that the beginning silence for recordings longer than 30 minutes is ~10 second (and the suggested beginning silence is ~ 0.5-1 second). This is the guideline, but there's no need to be totally accurate if you're close enough like in this case, I'm just mentioning it as something to keep in mind (of course, feel free to reupload your poem if you'd like to practise editing the silences :mrgreen: )

We didn't have John Williamson Palmer in the catalog, so I'll have to add him. Always nice to have new additions :D I'm having some trouble determining his dates (birth-death) because when I googled his name to find a wiki page or something, other dates came up (1825-1906). Do you happen to know which one is the correct one? It's not a poet I'm familiar with.
